UK-based filmmaker Shola Amoo has been featured a number of times on Shadow and Act in the past few years. First it was for his breakout science-fiction centered (but so much more) short film “Touch” which has since toured the film festival circuit as well as being included in the British Film Institute (BFI) Sci-Fi Season and winning the Shooting People’s ‘Film of the Month’ competition, as selected by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (Wolf of Wall Street).
Now following up on Amoo’s most recent mention announcing the filming “A Moving Image,” his current multimedia feature film about gentrification in Brixton and South London – which includes narrative, documentary, and performance art elements with shades of Afrofuturism – he is now seeking a modest amount of funds to complete the film’s production through the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform.
Reuniting with the lovely and talented “Touch” lead actress Tanya Fear for A Moving Image, the story follows Nina, a young stifled artist who returns to her community after a long absence and is soon accused of being a symbol of gentrification. Choosing to be an artist who represents solutions, Nina strives to create a piece of art that can bring her community together.
